Looking forward, looking back...so many things that were incredibly challenging...but so many good things that I can rejoice in, and be grateful for, as well.
Thank you to all of my dear blogging friends who have supported me, lifted me up, and held my thoughts and prayers as your own. I am so deeply grateful that I have this blog in a life that travels back and forth between my caring, and my care giving, for so many loved ones in my life.
There have been huge losses, and many sideways slip sliding, but there has also been one foot forwards at a time where I can see the gains, see the progress, see the good that I was able to create, and give to others.
All the proof positive that I need that there is a time between the darkness and the light, the world that lives upon the edge of time where nothing is either black nor white, but simply shades of beautiful, glorious color!
Color, fabric, magic, and dream time. All we need to enter into a New Year with new and endless possibilities for making a difference....one little piece of artful quilting, sewing, or wildcrafting at a time, one little post, one tiny poem, one ray of sunshine, one softly beating heart beat...it's yours to choose!
I chose my magic for the creation of memories last year.....and now it's time to choose again! Oh, what shall I create next?
